Today’s review is going to be of the Essence Colour Boost Vinylicious Liquid Lipstick, they are liquid lipstick in the sense that the feel like a melted lipstick but they don’t dry out.
I’m usually a big fan of essence lipstick but this one was a bit of a disaster.
It’s basically a very thick and opaque gloss and they come in seven shades, I got the 03 Pink Interest. Despite the packaging being more of a dusty pink the shade inside is VERY PINK.
You can get them here for 3,14$.
The packaging is really nice, I like the squeezy tube and the hourglass doe foot is perfect to put the lipstick on.
I feel like the shade on the outside it’s not really similar to the one on the inside, you’ll see, it’s way more pink.
This product is IMPOSSIBLE to put on, the applicator although it’s nice, it makes the lipstick so STREAKY, you literally can’t make it even.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
On top of being incredibly streaky it’s also a really gloopy formula it feels like you are putting honey on the lips and as soon as you close your mouth it sinks into EVERY fine line on the lips.
It also as the most horrible scent, it smells like melted plastic but with a hint of a sweeter scent, honestly it smells like they were trying to cover the plastic scent with a chemical vanilla perfume.
It doesn’t look bad from the distance and in the swatch but you can see in the close up how ugly and uneven it is.
I’m not entirely sure how long it will last, I couldn’t keep it on because the scent was making me nauseous but since it’s super sticky and not transfer proof I would suppose it can last around 3 hours.

I really don’t like this lipstick, it’s patchy, streaky and very uncomfortable. I like the packaging even if the outside colour tricked me. Maybe other shades are better but honestly the scent is TERRIBLE that I’m not willing to recommend them. It definitely concerns me that it smells like melted plastic. Sadly this product is a strong pass in my book.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
